Dear Friends,

Chatham’s Eldredge Public Library is one of the busiest libraries of our size in Massachusetts. Do you know that we are "one of the Cape's favorite activities for adults and children" and we're listed as one of the Top Eight Libraries of Massachusetts?

Summer visitors and residents alike may use computers, access our wireless connections, borrow or download books, check out audio books, CDs, DVDs, kits, and games - in short, everything our library has to offer is available to you. We have many activities for children, teens, and adults throughout the year. Come in and see how you can enjoy the many services offered at the Eldredge Public Library.

In turn, we appreciate your support to keep Chatham’s library one of the Cape’s best!

For only $10.00 you can buy a ticket to our Chatham by the Sea Summer Raffle and benefit the library too. Prizes can be seen at or come into the library to view these beautiful treasures donated by area businesses and artisans. Tickets for the Raffle are on sale at the front desk of the library through August 23. Please call (508) 945-5170 if you live out of town and need tickets mailed to you.

Our library receives over 40% of its annual support from generous friends like you. Funds raised by the Raffle support technology, youth programs, and update the extraordinary services our library offers to all of us.

Thank you for your support!


Friends of the Eldredge Public Library
